Red Widow: Cancelled by ABC, No Season Two

Red Widow canceledMarta Walraven (Radha Mitchell) won’t have to worry about working for the mob for a second season. Red Widow has been cancelled by ABC after one season and eight episodes.

Red Widow follows a San Francisco housewife and mother who finds herself forced to continue her late husband’s work in organized crime for the sake of her family. The series’ cast includes Radha Mitchell, Clifton Collins Jr., Luke Goss, Sterling Beaumon, Suleka Mathew, Erin Moriarty, Jaime Ray Newman, Jakob Salvati, Lee Tergesen, Wil Traval, Rade Serbedzija, and Goran Visnjic.

The show’s ratings were unfortunately very low right from the start — debuting to a 1.5 demo rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.13 million total viewers.

The numbers got worse for later episodes and Red Widow fell as low as a 0.7 rating and 3.47 million viewers — much too low to warrant a renewal.

What do you think? Are you sorry that the show has been cancelled? Why do you think it didn’t catch on with a bigger audience?

ABC did not even give this show a chance I loved it along with a bunch of my friends and then you leave crappy shows on like Last Man Standing BORING!!!!

I am so shocked that Red Widow was cancelled after one episode. You had a real winner on your hands with this one. Why don’t you get rid of some of those stupid 1/2 hour comedy series like Last Man Standing REALLY.

Seriously, this was a good show. They always cancel the good ones. Please reconsider, it’s like reading a half of a book without finishing the ending.

Why not go ahead with season 2 of Red Widow there is absolute rubbish being churned out by US producers that run for season after season .

I just watched this series and cant believe it has been canned. It must have been in the wrong time slot and advertising. It`s not because the story line is not good that’s for sure. Compared to all the other junk that is on and this get canceled wow.

I’m totally disappointed that Red Widow is cancelled! It was one of my six favorite shows. Along side with “Justified” and “The Americans” on FX, and “The Vikings” on History, “Hell on Wheels” on AMC, and “Copper” on BBC America.

I think this could have been a great series had they just given it another season. Was just starting to get interesting.
